Introducing My Very Own Easter Witch!
Submitted by Pam on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 23:39
Did you know that if you spend Easter in Sweden, Norway or Finland, you will most likely run into Easter witches?
Traditionally they are out and about on the Thursday before Easter - Skatorsdag! Some of you might remember this post last year in which I shared a few links including this one and this one from Sasha at Squashed Tomatoes.
Last summer, my lovely friend Gill sent me this adorable table linen from Norway! Don't you just love the sweet little Easter witches sitting on a fence gossiping and minding their chicks! They have been on my dining table since the day after Valentines!
Gill also shared that during Easter her mother-in-law always puts out her very own Easter witch. In fact it has been traditional for her to do so for many, many years.
And that did it! I absolutely had to have an Easter witch of my own.
These past few months I have been making gnomes, santas and witches using this "Woolly Gnome and Mushroom" knit/felt pattern from Marie Mayhew Designs and decided it would be the perfect starting point for an Easter witch!
A fancy Easter witch hat and sweet wild curls was all it took to transform the gnome pattern into my little witch!
Of course a good many Easter witches wear scarves instead of pointed hats - making that version next year!
And just in case you still don't believe in Easter witches, here are tons of delightful pictures. Guaranteed to make you smile!
